Does the general testing strategy apply to children as well
Thinking about policy for schools…daycares etc
How can public health officials convince FDA/regulators/government to move in the direction of daily testing with cheaper and lower sensitivity tests?
Is the underlying assumption that our goal is to remove all transmissible individuals from the population? More broadly, how should we be thinking about the ideal vs. realistic state of testing while accounting for social measures like mask-wearing, social distancing, etc.?
It seems like the instant coffee approach puts the individual in the driver seat to act (ie. self isolate, report to work/school, etc.) versus the nespresso approach puts the department of health in the driver seat to log cases, contact trace, isolate, etc. There could be implications if people don't report positive results and take no action. Could some hesitation to move to these instant tests be due to who is in control? How do we safeguard against those who won't take appropriate action?
